PCORnet Bariatric Study

PCORnet Bariatric Study

Lead Principal Investigator: David Arterburn, MD, MPH

Organization: Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute

Purpose:  To compare the one-, three-, and five-year health benefits and risks of the three main surgical treatment options for severe obesity (Roux-en-y gastric banding; adjustable gastric banding; sleeve gastrectomy). Investigators will analyze changes in weight, improvement in diabetes, and risk of major adverse health events following surgery.

Funded through a Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Award (OBSTY-1505-30683).

plots

Created distributed programming code to pull medical data from broad geographic area and ensure racial and ethnic diversity

Large patient population engaged as stakeholders and are providing medical data. Researchers worked closely with patients and clinicians to develop this study and choose outcomes shown to be the most important to people with severe obesity

Large sample size, geographic diversity
